Upon arrival at Institut Polaire, settle into the snowy, luxe interior taking a seat at the marble bar, or private tasting room for larger groups. Our cellar door team will guide you through 6 wine samples. Wines may include Domaine Simha Rao Chardonnay, Raya Sauvage, Rama Pinot Noir, Lotus Amphora Riesling, Lionheart Amphora Pinot, and Beauregard Amphora Pinot. Selection changes seasonally and with availability. A tailored cheese platter to share, enjoyed between samples, completes the experience.

The house of Simha originates from sanskrit for lion. To honour an heroic heritage, Domaine Simha wines take their titles from royalty and legends of the East. Crafted by hand in micro batches, just 2-3 barrels of each Domaine Simha wine are made. Single vineyard wines are shaped au naturel to harness the provenance of epic Tasmanian terroir and season. Methods embrace harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days, whole bunch wild fermentation with traditional pigeage, maturation in custom demi-muid oak and clay amphorae, basket pressing, bottling unfined and unfiltered with perfect natural balance.
